The GIVE Act: Exposed On The Bitten Word


The House passed the Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act on Monday. The bill includes language indicating young people will be forced to participate in mandatory national service programs. The bill also states that "service learning" will be a mandatory part of the youth curriculum.

This bill calls for a minimum of three months of mandatory service, during which time participants (our children) will be forbidden from attending worship services, bible studies, or Sunday School.
Read the entire post on The Bitten Word.

Whoa - hold on there. Our government, which was founded on religious freedom - in fact, is the reason we are not all living in England right now - is trying to put into law mandatory volunteerism (quite an oxymoron) during which they are restricting our freedom of religion?

Two questions:
WHY haven't we heard more about this?

HOW does something like this get all the way to being passed in the House?
Please go call your senators about this. NOW. They represent you. I'll make it easy for you:

The US Senate and contact information for each state.
